Originally posted by matt49er:not challenging you, inquiring here, how do we know we'll be back & that this wasn't in fact just a field trip from rehab? The article on the WZ front page said that the agreement was that he would turn himself in by the end of the month. In other words he had to turn himself in today or tomorrow at the latest, so he very well could be headed back to rehab unless I'm missing something.
don't get me wrong, I really hope this means the dude is out of rehab, taking care of his court crap and will be back at practice next week and suiting up against the Panther & at full steam against the Saints. I just don't see how it's a foregone conclusion.
Inpatient rehab is a 28 day process. That is why they agreed on him turning himself in now, that's when he was expected to be released. Also why coaches and management planned on assessing him during the bye week. Not sure if he'll play Panthers, but almost guarantee you'll see him chasing Brees around.
